    This Torie O'Shea adventure is a little far-fetched. Torie travels to Minnesota to visit her aunt and learns about a murder that occurred in her aunt's home 150 years ago. She investigates and solves that case and another that occurs while she's in town.

    Torie O'Shea, busy wife/mother/history buff and genealogist, gets an abrupt invitation to visit her favorite aunt in Olin, Minnesota. Regardless of the 12-hour drive from New Kassel, MO, Torie, husband Rudy, and step-father Colin Brooke travel north for a week of fishing in the land of ten thousand lakes for the guys and a week of helping Aunt Sissy for Torie. Saddled with the task of reading an old diary and searching for what happened to the author and her family, Torie becomes involved peripherally in a murder investigation with roots in past family jealousies over a hundred years old and murders that were never solved at that time. All of the puzzles are right up Torie's alley as amateur sleuth.Entertaining and unusual in topic, this slim volume would have benefitted from closer editing to remove typographical errors, and proofreading so that all names were consistently spelled and the town's names that are mentioned were not confused.(Cedar Rapids is used once instead of Cedar Springs which was the small town name used consistently up to that point.)Rating: 3.5

    Torie, Rudy and Colin are visiting Torie's Aunt Sissy and Uncle Joe in Olin, Minnesota. Sissy has found a novel/diary from a young woman who lived in the house in the 1870's. Sissy wants to know how the story ended and wants Torie to use her genealogy skills to find answers.As usual Torie and Colin are at loggerheads, Sissy is exasperating and Rudy and Joe try to stay out of the way. There is a lot of Minnesota history as well as family history in this book, all of it interesting and all tied together.Eventually Torie solves the mystery for Sissy, and helps the local sheriff solve a murder.I do love this series and this book is a marvelous addition to the series.

    Sadly this is the last MacPherson book I have to read. Now I will sit back and hope she writes another soon!!!My grandson has to write his favorite thing that happened in his books he has to read in the Summer. My favorite part of this book is when Torie remarks to a woman that her glorious ancestor may not be as upstanding as she thinks and the lady decks her in the Historical Society knocking her to the floor with a black eye to show for it! We genealogists do take our heritage seriously!!

    I have mixed feelings some negative , and some positive.When I saw the cover I thought I would enjoy it immensely. However, when I read the first chapter I was at first disappointed. The reason why was because the way the characters talked sounded silly, and I do not really care for that in books. When the mystery began it became intriguing. My thoughts were that: the mystery was well thought out. I had two qualms though: Despite this I was able to see who the culprit was a mile away. I also felt that although there was some emphasis on the wolves there should have been more

    I try not to read most series out of order, but this one caught my eye at the library and I snatched it up, knowing nothing of the series. I was hooked from the beginning of the story. Historical research and genealogy are interests of mine, so I thoroughly enjoyed that part of the book. The tragic story of the diary's author broke my heart. The current mystery in the book was almost a side note for me, but did remind me how much the past affects the present. Loved the book, and will be reading the ones that preceded it... and followed.

    This time Torie and Rudy go visit her aunt (Colin comes along too for the fishing). Colin gets arrested under suspicion of murder and so Torie has to help him prove his innocence. She had gone to visit her aunt to read an old diary found in her aunt's attic. The diary reveals long held secrets that resulted in multiple murders in 1859 as well as the murder which resulted in Colin's arrest.

    I love this Torie O'Shea series. I've never been into geneology or history in general, but they way MacPherson writes about it, with such passion, well, it actually sounds like fun. Plus, I love how Torie's so sarcastic and witty about life and people in general. These aren't serious books, just a fun read.

    This is the first book by Rett MacPherson I have read, though I understand there have been a number already published in the series. What a delightful blend of genealogical sleuthing to solve real mysteries! Family research does require much research and they come together well in this mystery.For anyone who enjoys family history and mysteries, this is an excellent choice!

    I enjoyed this book quite a bit. I've never really been that much into mysteries but this series peaked my interest. I will definitely go out and see if I can find any others. I would definitely recommend it.

    New author, new skill of genealogy, kind of fun, mystery lame, likelihood of answering questions about 150 year old murder about 0. But not, may look for another in series. I did like the husband character, seemed real.

    Having lived in Minnesota for several years, I enjoyed returning to the land of 10,000 lakes. Another good, quick read following Torie O'Shea in her adventures.

    This was the first book in the series that I didn't love. There were too many underdeveloped characters and a couple of plot holes. Still, I'm looking forward to the rest of this series.

    The Torie O'Shea books are great for a light read with a mystery. Torie is a great protagonist and uses a lot of humor to solve her mysteries.
